For anyone interested, Concordant Publishing Concern publishes a GNT
titled _Concordant Greek Text_. The description (in capitals) on the title
"A GREEK TEXT RESTORED FROM UNCIAL MANUSCRIPTS (SINAITICUS,
VATICANUS, ALEXANDRINUS) AND THEIR ANCIENT EDITORS WITH
THE VARIANT READINGS IN THE SUPERLINEAR"
"AND AN ULTRALITERAL ENGLISH TRANSLATION IN THE SUBLINEAR"
The publishers address is:
Concordant Publishing Concern
15570 West Knochaven Road
Canyon Country, CA 91351
There are two columns to the page and the text itself is in uncials sans
accents, punctuations and breathing marks. Also, a word that begins on one
line of text continues on the next line when there is insufficient space
the word on that particular line.
Personally, I have just begun to read the GNT. I have started in John and
still struggling. Therefore I don't really feel qualified to comment on
the text, etc.
Perhaps someone else on the list familiar with it can do so.
I purchased it some time ago in anticipation of the day when I could
read it so I don't remember the price but I think it was about $25.
Also, I just located on my hard drive an e-mail address that might work
is interest in contacting the publisher:
email@example.com (James Coram)
Peace and Blessings,
